Two children reading in the TAS libraries

The Joanna Nichols Memorial Libraries

The libraries are at the center of teaching and learning at Taipei American School and are committed to fostering student curiosity and a lifelong love of reading. Library programs and collections evolve with the school curriculum and community needs.

Designed for Learning  

Each of the four TAS libraries has a thoughtfully designed and age-appropriate space, a rich collection of print materials, and an extensive selection of online materials including eBooks, audiobooks, databases, and other digital resources. 

Lower School Library

A joyful place with thousands of books for developing readers to explore, and a hub for after-school events and activities.

Middle School Library

Middle School students reading at TAS

A resource for learning and the joy of reading, where students practice key digital and analog skills.

Upper School Information Commons

A perfect place for research, collaboration, and relaxation, with silent study spaces and group work rooms.

KA-12 Chinese Library

A robust collection supporting our Mandarin language curriculum, with a dedicated presentation space.

A Place for Community

Professional librarians encourage and support inquiry, critical thinking, and age-appropriate information-seeking behavior with increasing independence and complexity through each division. The libraries also serve as venues for author visits, social events, and meeting spaces for the entire TAS community, and are widely used throughout the week.

The KA-12 Librarian Team

Through our extensive collection of books and state-of-the-art digital resources, the six-person KA-12 librarian team is dedicated to inspiring intellectual curiosity and fostering academic growth in all of our students. At TAS, we nurture a lifelong love for reading and research by creating four welcoming spaces - the Lower School Library, Middle School Library, Upper School Information Commons, and Chinese Library - for students to explore our exhaustive physical and digital resources.
